    Lyrics

    Higher, I'm a king, yes, I'm a head of state
    But I'm the kitchen, boy who'll wash your dirty plate
    I had no message and the message was
    We're all Jesus, Buddha and the Wizard of Oz

    I'm merely a man and I bring nothing but love for you
    I'm merely a man and I want nothing that you can't do

    And you know it's true that with logic
    And love we'll be lifting humanity higher, higher

    I'm all religious figures rolled into one
    Gaddafy Duck propelled from Jimmy Swaggart's tommy gun
    Don't promise rainbows with some golden pot
    In fact what I can offer, I know you've already got

    I'm merely a man and I bring nothing but love for you
    I'm merely a man and I want nothing that you can't do

    And you know it's true that with logic
    And love we'll have power enough
    To raise consciousness up
    And for lifting humanity higher, higher

    And you know it's true, we should chase superstition
    And fear from our hearts if we're going to survive
    And take levels of sanity higher, kick it up, higher

    I'm merely a man and I bring nothing but love for you
    I'm merely a man and I want nothing that you can't do
    I'm merely a man and I bring nothing but love for you
    I'm merely a man and I want nothing that you can't do

    And you know it's true that with logic
    And love we'll have power enough
    To raise consciousness up
    And for lifting humanity higher
